      I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time

      Pros

      Nice friendly people and a very pleasant office to work in.

      Cons

      Awkward, complicated, restrictive processes means you get problems where there don't need to be any. Staff can't park at the office all 5 days of the week. You have to use the park and ride and it's a bit creepy after dark.

      Advice to Management

      Sort out the processes and the parking PLEASE.

        I have been working at PRA Health Sciences full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Decent work life balance, but depending on project.

        Cons

        High workload and feel under appreciated. Typical corporate work, not seen for the 99% great work, but recognised for the 1% bad. Systems overload and not able to be creative.

        Advice to Management

        Listen to your staff. Unfortunately on completely different wavelengths with functional manager. Such a shame as an understanding and empathic line manager can really increase work productivity.
